I am back with love; Presencing in the Anza-Borrego Desert
As a former World Champion in sailing Hein knows how to be one with the water and the wind. He has experienced ‘Presence’ as a sailor where he ‘knew’ what the wind and the other competitors were going to do. But how would that be in the desert; alone, without food? He registers for a vision quest in the Anza Borrego Desert in Southern California: small group, 12 days in the wilderness, four days of fasting and three days of solo. He journals about his experiences during the quest in a personal, authentic and funny way. His unique style of story telling stimulates the reader to dive into his own core questions in life.

Praise for I am back – with love
I just finished reading, I’m Back and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed and learned from it. Your honesty throughout the book was both refreshing and inspirational. For example, when you talked about “your loyal soldier, “ I could really resonate and wanted to introduce my soldier to yours. Hearing that I have friends on that journey too was quite supportive and affirming. You are a good and honest writer

Once more I wish to thank you for the inspiring and illuminating words of your book. You write with brave honesty and captivating humor about your experience and in doing so touch universal sentiments we can all share and learn from. I just finished the book yesterday and enjoyed it very much.
Secondly, I want to say how much I learned from and appreciated your presence in the Master Class. You always struck me as one who has his feet firmly on the ground with solid experience of human frailty and life’s challenges yet was one who has kept high ideals up front in a very human and courageous way. I thank you for that. Your clients are fortunate to have you guide them.
I wish you well in your work and happy times with your family these summer months. When I was a boy I used to sail with an uncle, but never kept it up…maybe you can offer learning journeys at sea for some of us old timers of the master class!!

Your book accompanied my journey from Berlin to Shanghai. I did not feel I was on a journey of flight but a journey of yours which you shared vividly in the book. I felt I was there and understood everything you wrote. I may not comprehend the depth but I saw you and felt myself. It helped me retrieved the feeling I had during the solo in cape cod.

Afgelopen weekend je boek in twee keer uitgelezen! Dat is toch echt heel bijzonder zeg, dat effect. Jouw ervaringen zitten dan inene onder mijn huid, alsof ik erbij ben geweest.

“From now you’re a great author to me! You gave me the opportunity to travel with you, to sit on your shoulder, to share your thoughts and feelings during your courageous personal journey and writing process. And yes, you made it! “I’m back” is a very intimate story. After reading this I know for sure, the only choice I have is to follow my heart.”
